    I used to CCW the Speer .45 ACP 200-gr JHP. Quite a loading.

  2. That doesn't even make sense. This is not a GAP vs ACP thread.

    That the .45 GAP was so popular with LEOs. :cool:
     
  4. From the Troopers I have spoke to the GAP shoot's softer and with less muzzle flip than
    the 9mm. I would rather have the glock 17 loaded with speer gold dot 124 grain plus p. than 10 rounds of a not so much more powerful 45 gap. and just 20 more rounds for back up with the 2 spare mags they are issued. the glock 21sf would have been an even better choice in the 45 arena.
     
  5. LMAO at all the calibre quarterbacking. I would say 1 shot, 1 stop; looks like the GAP did fine.
     

  6. I respectfully disagree. It recoils more than a 9mm Glock but is not as sharp as a hot .40 S&W per my experiences. However, it was the most accurate Glock that I have ever shot (G38). I think that has something to do with the octagonal rifling used in .45 cal Glocks, whether GAP or ACP.

    I respectfully disagree also. The 9mm bullet weighs half as much as the .45 bullet. Recoil is a function of bullet weight, mostly.
     
  8. Just repeating what an actual trooper said. I dont own a glock 37 so I dont know personally sounds like a good platform but ammo is kinda hard to find around my area.

    Okay :cool:
     
  10. Now I know why Barry is 6 points up in Nuevo York....
     
  11. How does EVERY topic on here turn political?
     
  12. My very short list includes a G39. I love the idea of a .45 in a G26 size pistol.

    Sounds like the perfect replacement for the Colt New Agent I used to have.

    One shot. one stop. :supergrin::supergrin::supergrin::supergrin:
     
  16. I picked up a Lee Press and dies to reload .45 for my new G38.

    Unfortunately, I have to wait for the G38 to come back from Smyrna after being blown up by a WWB SQUIB!
